Good place for model train people

It was a nice place to visit.However it would have been a bit better for us if the trains had been running that day.There was a nice selection of puzzles there also.

Model trains travel through a miniature German alpine village and through the countryside. We took a grandchild, but enjoyed it ourselves as much as the child did. A retired German man built this as a labor of love. It fits perfectly with Helen's alpine German theme.

A very impressive creation and a very interesting couple! We enjoyed checking out every nook and cranny of this collection.

We were going to visit but it is closed. A for sale sign is up, sadly. Jolly Toys is next door, although there is still a sign for charlemagnes kingdom

Charlemagne's Kingdom has been a beautiful staple in Helen, GA and we're sorry to see them go. I encourage you to stop by the building if your down there in the near future. They are selling a lot of stuff at fantastic prices. They will be gone soon and we're not sure where they will end up, but we wish... More

This HO Layout is a labor of love. For anyone that is fond of model railroads and Germany, this is a win-win. Great attention to detail, and its a good size layout. From the Zugsptize in the "south" to the docks of Hamburg in the north and places in the middle, It reminded me of a larger version of the... More

Boooo....walked all the way down to view a for sale sign. A real disappointment to say the least. However, there are two attractions in the same building, maybe they were closed for the season? I kind of don't think so.

$5 - not expensive to get in, nice floor model with upper and lower level walk arounds and a little guide paper. A good way to spend half an hour. Fairly accurate topographic map, could be maintained a little better and didn't get the humor of the 2 little crashed spaceships (haha).
